Shoppers in Durham City will have the chance to attend free style and beauty consultations with expert stylists from Thursday 17th to Saturday 19th November as part of Durham Business Improvement District’s (BID) monthly InDurham weekend.

The Fashion InDurham event is taking place at the Durham Marriot Hotel where visitors will receive one-to-one appointments. Open to both men and women, the event will support shoppers with any fashion and beauty concerns or questions ahead of the festive season.

Adam Deathe, business engagement manager at Durham BID, said: “We’re really excited to be seeing Fashion InDurham back in November for an extra special Christmas event after how popular it has been in previous months.

“Not only do we have skilled stylist and personal shopper, Belinda Alexander, returning to give her top advice, but beauty and hair experts are getting even more involved providing support to shoppers to help finish off their new looks during the appointments.

“Whether you want to wow at an upcoming party, New Year’s Eve or even just spruce up your day-to-day look, our stylists are here to help, so make sure you book to guarantee an appointment. The experts will work with you to understand your style, offering recommendations on which outfits, hair styles and makeup will complement your shape, colouring, personality as well as current seasonal trends.”

Thursday’s Fashion InDurham has the added bonus of extended consultations, lasting a full hour between 1pm-6pm. The appointments will provide in-depth fashion advice, plus beauty and hair recommendations from businesses across the City including hair salon, Alchemy. 40 minute slots will also be available to visitors coming in to the City on Friday and Saturday 11am-5pm.

The free appointments are bookable online via the Durham BID website, and people are advised to book in advance to avoid disappointment.

East’s Colour and Style Consultant, Bev Rewbury will also be offering her services for half price to customers in store on Saturday 12th November as part of the wider Fashion InDurham event.

As part of the InDurham Weekend, which takes place on the third weekend of every month, visitors to the City will also be able to take advantage of Fashion InDurham special offers and Dine InDurham set menu deals.
